Abstract

We compared laparoscopic ultrasonography (LICU) with static (S) or dynamic (D) cholangiography (IOC) for assessment of duct anatomy and calculi in 209 patients. LICU visualized ducts in 88% compared with 93% for IOC (P=0.046). Nineteen patients (9%) had stones: 17 were found by LICU (89%) and 10 (53%) by IOC (P=0.032). Time to perform LICU (7±3 min) was less than IOC (13±6 min) (P
